ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • Five hours of college, every day with two shifts isn\'t hard for a student.
  • The quality of teaching is different in both the shifts.
  • Professor accessibility outside class is good as they have their own forums for the classrooms outside where they regularly respond to student queries.
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS:
  • Loyola has a credit system where a student have to be a part of student club and it is a part of the curriculum.
  • It engages the students in extracurricular activities. 
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE:
  • Most courses in the college are not co-ed. Alcohol and dorm parties are strictly prohibited.
  • Despite that, there is a buzz and a good atmosphere in the college and the vibe around is really good.
  • Situated in the centre of the city in Nungambakkam, Loyola is one of the top colleges for Commerce in India.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • While the academic schedule is rigorous, there is scope for one to excel at academics, provided the warranted work ethic exists.
  • Classes last for approximately five hours and while there is limited flexibility in the first year when it comes to the choices of courses available; this expands much more in the second and third years and one can choose a specialisation which matches with his aptitude and interest.
  • For major subjects, there are usually two projects per semester which usually well spaced out and have a completion duration of approximately two weeks.
  • While there exists a case of having a single professor who is a bit of a let down each semester, the rest are of a very high standard with one or two professors being just incredible and pretty inspirational!
  • The teaching methodology generally varies from teacher to teacher and across subjects but it is, on the whole, engaging and the use of real life examples is rife. Professors also try engaging the students in discussions, a la the Harvard Case Method.
  • Professors are generally accessible if one has doubts or would like to discuss an intricacy of the subject in greater detail. They are generally adept at providing reference material or recommending ; at the very least.
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE:
  • There exists a BBA programme with the Catholic University of Lille in France and in their third year, students go to France to complete their complete education.
  • Those who are admitted into this programme spend under three lakhs in terms of total academic expenditure.
  • While the lingua franca is English; Tamil features heavily on campus and to a lesser extent, Hindi.
  • There are a wide variety of languages which are taught on campus which include Spanish, French, Russian and German and the Iberian language of Portuguese is also spoken by a few.
  • International students from far-flung countries also study at Loyola. These countries include Sudan and East Timor, among others.
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS:
  • In the first year, a student is mandated to complete 120 hours of club activities to pass the year.
  • There are about thirty clubs to choose from; across varied fields of interest.
  • The NCC, both the army and navy arms, are well reputed and have provided many an officer to the military since their inception in the years prior to independence.
  • A full-size football pitch exists with significant seating capacity, akin to the cricket pitch.
  • Supplementarily, four basketball courts are augment with two volleyball courts.
  • All these facilities are well used. There are plans on to build a swimming pool. The gym, however, does not meet expectations.
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE:
  • While Loyola is primarily a boy\'s college, it has a diverse student body. The sons of politicians study alongside those of illiterate farmers. From the perspective of nationality too, there are cases of Germans being classmates of Sudanese nationals as well.
  • Dorm parties are non-existent albeit students do party hard outside campus as there are many nightclubs and fine restaurants within a fifteen-minute radius of the campus.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • The faculty is impressive; at least they have made an impression on the students.
  • The faculty is not too friendly, nor too strict. They get along well with the students.
  • The students are even taken for an industrial visit during their course, although it is just a day visit.
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE:
  • One-third of the students are from outside the city and consequently hostel dwellers.
  • These students are from the South Indians states only. The rest are from the suburbs of Chennai.
  • Loyola does have a few North Indian students too, who initially find it difficult to adjust here but later they mingle well with the locals.
  • If you are from a liberal school of thought then you might find it difficult to adjust to the environment here.
